Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights
Pre-Sessional Working Group, 22-26 November 2010
All participants in Committee sessions will require accreditation to the session to have access to the conference venue, except individuals who are already in possession of UN badges. To obtain accreditation, please fill out the accreditation form (available in pdf and Word), sign and send it by fax to 0041-22-917 9008, or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. In order to ensure the accreditation of participants, all requests for accreditation should reach OHCHR by Tuesday 16th November 2010 at the latest (Since Wednesday the 17th is an Official Holiday). Accreditation will enable participants to obtain a badge from the UN Security Unit. In general, the meetings of the pre-sessional working group take place in private and are thus not open to NGO participation or observation. However, a meeting is reserved on the afternoon of the first day of the pre-session for exchanges with partners, including UN agencies and NGOs, in relation to the States parties to be reviewed by the working group. Accreditation procedures apply to those who wish to participate in that meeting.
